THE EOT AND THE MANTLE.               15
Some threw them under the table, And said they had none.
King Arthur and the child
Stood looking them upon;                        iro
All their knives edges
Turned backe againe.
Craddocke had a little knive
Of iron and of Steele;
He britled the bores head                        ire
Wonderous weele,
That every knight in the kings court
Had a morssell.
The little boy had a home,
Of red gold that ronge :                            i*>
He said there was " noe cuckolde
Shall drinke of my home,
But he shold it sheede,
Either behind or beforne."
Some shedd on their shoulder,               iss
And some on their knee;
He that cold not hitt his mouthe,
Put it in his eye:
And he that was a cuckold
Every man might him see.                      >*.
MS. V. 176,Orbirtled.
